Differences In Difficulty Options
The difficulty will affect the enemy's aggression towards players during encounters. This means that easier modes will have more breathing room in between attacks, while harder modes will keep you on your toes!
Timing During Combat
The game's combat system puts a heavy emphasis on a player's skill. Timing your parries and dodges will help you execute devastating counterattacks against enemies. As the difficulty rises, the timing for dodging and parrying becomes smaller.Check Out Combat Mechanics Here!
No Changes In Enemy Health
The game does not alter the enemy's health no matter which difficulty setting. This is to preserve the lethality of the katana weapon.
